5 fashion podcasts to listen to during the quarantine From Dior and Gucci talks to Fashion No Filter's duo

They increase the brand's storytelling with an investment that costs several hundred euros for equipment and about 30-50 euros per month for online hosting". If the pioneer of the phenomenon was Chanel, which already in 2017 launched 3.55, a production made on the occasion of the closure of the Colette concept store and recorded right in the boutique, now the offer available is very wide.
